|A Deadly Sin|
|John 8:1-11 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|A lot of Christians these days want to point out others sins in front of everyone. It's not everyone's business what bad things that are happening in someone's life or in your church. We must be careful how we bring things up to others. These people brought this woman and made a scene with her in front of everyone. She knew she was in the wrong, no one had to say anything to bring that to light. This woman was embarrassed and if she was left alone with nothing happening she probably would have felt mad, angry, and bitter towards the church. If we were still under the law there would be none of us that would be able to keep them. According to the 10 Commandments, if one of those rules were broken then you'd be stoned to death. How many times have you been put to death today for breaking just one of those commandments today? When our brothers and sisters are down or in a sinful nature we should want to help them out of the ditch. The church should be lifting up their pastor because they have downer days as well. We should be pleasing our neighbors. This can be done in different ways not just by works. If you're pleasing God then you'll want to please your neighbor. Thinking about the life of Jesus. Do you think He had the thoughts of doubts? We know He did at one point because He was scared and prayed to make sure He was to do what His father was telling Him to do. Sin is sin no matter how big or small we want to label them.|

|Get Ready And Give Thanks|
|Ezekiel 37:1-13 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Many times we come to Gods house and we find ourselves not prepared. Romans 5:8, God loves His children and knew what we would do to run our backs to Him. BUT He still loves us. 1 Peter 5:7, we shouldn't try to fix the problems in our lives because He wants us to cast them on Him. Some times in our lives we go thru dry times and it's due to not being at Gods side. No matter what problem we have God has the answer for it. It may not be what we want the answer to be, but He knows the future and what is good for us. Have you ever taken the time to look back and see where you could have been with God coming into your life. Without God intervening in ours lives we would surely be in a heap of trouble. Christians shouldn't feel comfortable in this world because this isn't our home. John 3:8, have you ever felt His presence in such a way that it'll make you want to shout? A lot of people in the church come together to talk about the problems and become a social club. Instead of talking about each other we should be edifying the brethren. Be careful cause it only takes one time. One time to skip a church service, then you'll skip another, and another and before you know it you're out in the world and living a sinful life. Everyday that God gives you is a gift because it's not guaranteed.|

|Stay Away From Evil Things|
|1 Thessalonians 5:16-22 (Part of the The Need For Christian Duties series).|
|People don't want to hear this saying anymore. People want to live the way they want to, however they want and whenever they want. Once you're born again you are no longer yourself but holy. How many of you have damaged your testimony because you've messed with something that you know you shouldn't had? Did you know that people are watching you whether you want them to or not? To some people the only "bible" they know is thru your life. Staying away from evil cramps people's style.
Let's just be honest for just a minute, look in the mirror and you should see a person that has problems with staying away from evil. One of the hardest things to do is to control the tongue. The scripture doesn't just apply to the preachers or deacons. It was addressed to ALL Christians.
It's very difficult to get a persons confidence back after it's been lost. You're the one that the lost is watching and taking note on your actions. Christians have been pulled out of the world and therefore shouldn't be IN the world. The lost are constantly looking for hypocrites.
One must prove it first to make sure it's of a Godly nature. Do the "smell test". Stop and take the time to evaluate prior to doing them. There is no grey area when it comes to right or wrong. The grey area is created by us that wants to feel good about doing something wrong, therefore it would classified as wrong. The power of the church is based upon the faithfulness or life of its members. Phil 4:8, there are things that should be done in front of the lost.
One can't unscramble the eggs or put the toothpaste back into the tube. What do you do if you've messed things up with your testimony/life? Change, there is an expectation that each time you attend church there should be a change. When we change the lost will see it and want to know what's the difference. We should apologize to them for acting out wrong.

|Sin, the Separator|
|Jonah 1:1-2:10 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Sin will take you further than you ever wanted to go before you'll realize it. Jonah was told to spread Gods word but he refused to. Just in our own churches, many feel that it's only the pastors job to spread His word. Plain and simple we just don't want God to show up and show off. We are afraid of what God might do. We should all be more like the men in the upper room, expecting God to show up and do wonderful things!
One can try to hide from God but He always knows where you are and what you thinking. If your a saved person then you will answer for your sinful actions. God will get your attention in some way, whatever it takes. If you're a Christian and make he choice to live a sinful life, you will run away from God. Once you're on the run it will feel as if you're living out Hell on earth.

|Deal With It!|
|Colossians 3:1-9 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|The truth is the bible whether anyone wants to believe it or not. There are things that we all have problems lining up with. The things that separate us from Christ and the joys that behold Him are worldly and sinful. Col 3:5 We want to excuse ourselves of certain things just because we don't want to deal with those sins. The problem with a living sacrifice is that it keeps squirming and never sits still. We should stop fornicating. Fornication is sex at any measure outside of marriage. Uncleanness is lewd and unclean thoughts and should be repented of. Inordinate affections are vile desires, homosexuality. Evil concupiscence is evil lusts, murder. These four things are fleshly lusts. Covetousness is the lust of the eyes, love of the world. Theses things are often tied to the pride of life, anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, and filthy communication. Anger should always be taken care of and not dwelt on. Wrath is similar to anger and is a product of it. Wrath is somewhat you should have dealt with and usually requires forgiveness of the worldly enemy. Wraths revenge is malice. Blasphemy is speaking evil. The tongue is like the rudder of a large ship, it's small but turns the entire ship. Blasphemy and filthy communication is due to the anger, wrath and malice that comes out verbally. Our speech should be the one thing that when others hear it they know it's of Christ. God hates a lie because it's the opposite of truth. One might think, it's just a little white lie. One should be careful because if it doesn't line up with Gods Word, it's wrong whether you think it was little or not. One of the reasons why we should deal with the above sins, Col 3:6 those things are what a lost person does. If you're saved and do those things then you're living in sin and asking for Gods wrath because you're living a hypocrites life. The saved knows the difference between doing those sinful things and living in Gods love. If a person still wants the old stuff, then your lost. When you're saved you no longer desire the sinful nature because you're a new person in Christ.|
